Subject: Security Update: [CSSA-2002-036.0] Linux: remote buffer overflow in webalizer reverse lookup code



			SCO Security Advisory

Subject:		Linux: remote buffer overflow in webalizer reverse lookup code
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2002-036.0
Issue date: 		2002 October 22
Cross reference:

1. Problem Description

	The webalizer program will perform reverse DNS lookups. Using
	a buffer overflow in this reverse lookup code, an attacker with
	a rogue DNS server can gain root access to the machine running

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to webalizer-2.01_09-2.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Server		prior to webalizer-2.01_09-2.i386.rpm

3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
